Colors of India

24 Jul

As some of you may know, the Couture Fashion Week is currently on in India’s most fashionable city of Delhi. And from what I’ve seen so far, it is quite a show!

Rich textiles, authentic Indian handicrafts, beautiful mix of traditional and contemporary designs – the Delhi Couture week has much to offer. My favorite pick was from the designer duo of Ashima and Leena Singh. Check this gorgeous outfit out from their collection…So many things to like: the combination of silk, brocade and sheer fabrics, the muted bright colors with dull gold and the draping…magical!

Did you know? Ashima and Leena Singh are actually sisters-in-law that came together to build this brand, with Ashima leading the designs while Leena spearheads the marketing of the brand. Interesting business partners! :–)

I just learned that the budding Indian actress Kalki Koechlin (who is French but grew up in India) recently wed her director boyfriend (who also launched her in one of his many critically-acclaimed films) in an intimate ceremony in Southern India.

Interesting story, eh?

But this is not E! News, so let’s talk fashion. ;–)
